…sales from my “Yorkshire Christmas” (cards & auction of the artwork) have raised a Grand Total of …. £400 ! Phenomenal !! This will be donated to Friends of Ferals – who feed,rescue,treat and sometimes even manage to find homes for, feral cats & kittens living rough, in and around Sheffield. More news will follow soon about how the funds will be used…..
……It a cause very close to my heart, so THANKYOU to everyone who has bought cards and supported this event. Cards have also raised funds for Labrador Welfare (Sheffield) and Greyhound Trust Sheffield ……..Thank you everyone !
